The Legend of Zelda amiibo are some of the toughest ones to find. But it’s getting a little easier to secure ones for yourself ahead of the May 12 launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom for the Nintendo Switch. Best Buy is accepting pre-orders for the Link amiibo from Majora’s Mask, and GameStop has the Link amiibo from Twilight Princess available for pre-order.

Like in Breath of the Wild, amiibo play a role in the forthcoming Tears of the Kingdom, granting you some in-game items. Better yet, Nintendo has confirmed that tapping a Zelda-themed amiibo on your Switch will change the look of Link’s paraglider, with a different design depending on the figure. However, it hasn’t confirmed whether every Zelda amiibo (there are a lot of them) will yield a cosmetic upgrade for the glider, or if only certain ones can.

Below, we’ve included links to amiibo that Nintendo says will offer special Tears of the Kingdom integration, and others that are coming back in stock. We’ll be adding links to retailers who have stock available to pre-order or purchase, with pricier alternatives in case you’re willing to pay more to get your hands on them.

Link (Majora’s Mask) amiibo

Best Buy currently lists this amiibo as “coming soon,” with a May 12 release date — the same day when Tears of the Kingdom will release in the United States. It’s now available for pre-order.

This figure is listed as “coming soon,” also with a May 12 release date at Best Buy. It will be $15.99, and while it’s not yet available for pre-order at Best Buy, you can pre-order it through GameStop and at Target.

Link: Rider (Breath of the Wild) amiibo

Link (Twilight Princess) amiibo

GameStop is now accepting pre-orders for the Link from Twilight Princess amiibo, which costs $15.99. Nintendo hasn’t shared whether this amiibo will have an effect on Link’s paraglider fabric in Tears of the Kingdom, but it’s possible that it will.

Update (March 17): The pre-orders for the amiibo of Link from his Twilight Princess and Majora’s Mask era are now live at GameStop and Best Buy, respectively.
